Subject: Oil production of American Indians
This is an interesting short paper on the efforts of the American Indians to produce oil that was used for food, preparation of face paints and pottery paints, bodily health, polishing ornaments and weapons. Also mentioned was the method of salt production, as well as skin preparations. Very interesting to read of the very laborious methods used to produce these items and how they were used in everyday Indian life.
